How do health care facilities use electronic (or computerized ) medical records(EMR)?

Pleas tell me if this is right
They use EMR medical records for patient safety , such as physician orders,exam and test reports are a legal document.

    They use EMR medical records for patient safety , such as physician orders,exam and test reports are a legal document.

    Let's reword your ideas.

    Health care facilities use EMR for physicians orders and exam and test results. Patient safety is a prime concern for EMR.

    I would be careful with your wording. I would suggest that the EMR does not significantly improve the patient safety over a paper based record system. What it does do is provide a record that is easily accessible from diverse locations, that is secure (backed up in one or more locations), and is versatile in that it can be configured to be used by a variety of health practioners.
    I agree that the various documents have a legal standing.
